When I ordered the book, I never thought how interesting legislation combatting poverty and disease, mostly in the 19th century, could be.

Written in succinct chapters, with short, informative margin notes, it is written as a manual, but I found I could not put it down until I found out how the UK sorted it all out (at least some of it!) by the 1920s.

For anyone studying 19th Social History, this book is a must.

While few disagree that Public Health is one of the less riveting topics on the new A level syllabus, this book suceeds in capturing your attention. The information is clear, concise and easy to understand.
The book covers all the major public health reforms of the nineteenth century and many of the minor acts as well. I would advise anyone studying public health to purchase this book. It is well worth the money.

Bought for my son's AS History course. Lots of very good information, but the ordering (topic by topic rather than chronological) made it come across a little disjointed. Well worth having but pricey at full cost.

Good book for looking through while researching my History of childhood in the 19th century.
Especially for students who did not do history at A level

This was a brilliant book in relation to covering the poor law and public health assignments for Social and Economic History. Can highly recommend.
